I have this set of three prints in my kitchen. I bought them in a regular gift shop and I love the detail in them. 
The artist seems to be De Keyser or something like that.

This also from Jim Bolland. I should ask the readers about what they are seeing here and where it could be.

The story behind the picture is about a grandfather out on the water and seeing the boat for the first time. The grandson is asking: "Pop, is she flying now?"

Thats the 1988 AC, in which the Stars and Stripes 60' catamaran (thank you, Burt Rutan) whooped ass on the above pictured 120-foot leaner:

Will sail for food
I bought this piece of art for my dad for Christmas when I was in high school.  At the time the shopping mall had these art vendors in the center court area and one of them had a bunch of these wooden style art pieces.  One of the pieces was this sailboat.  I really liked it and bought it for him.  It reminded me of our family boat at the time.  It was his favorite gift I ever game him and still hangs in the main dining room of his home.

Hmm- I’m assuming that this is the “Lady Brassey” the cartoon refers to. Looks like she was an interesting character and a seasoned world cruiser.
She must have been quite a gal:  once around the world and twice around the Horn and many adventures in the Atlantic.

Sunbeam (157') - the first private yacht circumnavigate the globe

(Her book) "...A Voyage in the Sunbeam, describing their journey round the world in 1876–1877 with a complement of 43, including family, friends and crew, ran through many English editions and was translated into at least five languages. Her accounts of later voyages include Sunshine and Storm in the East (1880); In the Trades, the Tropics, and the Roaring Forties (1885); and The Last Voyage (1889, published posthumously)..."

She knows here stuff - a writing sample:

"...She had published privately earlier works including A Flight of the Meteor, detailing two cruises in the Mediterranean on their earlier yacht Meteor and A Voyage in the Eothen a description of their travels to Canada and the United States in 1872. She was also involved with the publication of Colonel Henry Stuart-Wortley's 1882 Tahiti, a Series of Photographs..."
